Where do I submit my documents?

To submit your documents, please log on to the application portal and choose «my documents» in the top menu.

Can you confirm that my application is received and that everything is correct?

There are many applicants who ask if we can check their application. Unfortunately, we don’t have the capacity to check individual applications outside of the evaluation process. It is every applicant’s responsibility to make sure that the application is sent within the deadline, and that the correct documentation accompanies the application.

How can I see if I have uploaded all my documents successfully?

If you click on «my documents» in the top menu, you should be able to see your uploaded documents. All documents that are visible to you in Søknadsweb are avaliable to us as well.

Can I be admitted if I do not have the required score on my language test?

No. Applicants with a lower overall score on their language test will not be admitted.

Do you offer any scholarships?

NMBU does not offer scholarships. Please contact the educational authorities or funding organizations in your home country in order to find out if you are eligible for other types of funding. Read more about financing here.

Are there any tuition fees?

There is currently no tuition fee. The Norwegian Government has proposed to implement a tuition fee for international students from fall 2023. We do not know if the parliament will accept the proposal. For the time being, prospective students are advised to apply in the regular manner, which means you only need to document that you are able to cover your living cost during the study period. We will update our information to prospective students as soon as possible. 

Most students must pay a small semester fee. This fee goes to student benefits and services offered by the University Foundation for Student Life in Ås.

May I apply if I am to complete my education after the application deadline for international students?

No. If you are applying as an international student, all required education must be completed and graduated when you apply.

I won’t receive my diploma before the deadline. Can I use a provisional certificate?

Yes. Please click here for more information regarding required documentation.

I missed the deadline. Can I still reply?

No, it is not possible to register an application after the deadline.
